Catching up with day 17 and 18 of #letsgetflexy, the poses are Garbha Pindasana and Supta Padanghustasana!

Working on my cosy new desk for the first time

To embrace the wonder with which consciousness continually manifests and celebrate the perpetual state of flux that is the mark of this manifest world, whilst being rooted in pure consciousness, this is freedom the yogi strives for Lara Baumann, Quantum Yoga

Day 16 #LetsGetFlexy is Ustrasana! I love this pose now but I still remember the first time we did this pose in class, I was so terrified, just the idea of letting my hand and head drop down like that!

Wounds don’t heal the way you want them to, they heal the way they need to. It takes time for wounds to fade into scars. It takes time for the process of healing to take place.

Give yourself that time. Give yourself that grace. Be gentle with your wounds. Be gentle with your heart. You deserve to heal. You have a right to know peace in your skin.

Ardha Matsyendrasana on day 15 of #letsgetflexy

Drinking coffee and listening to alt j while lounging in bath is the perfect way to start the day! The water turned purple with my shampoo and it was so pretty. I used coconut oil as a moisturiser and my skin feels baby soft. Now I’m going to drink more coffee and read some stuff, hope you guys are having a lovely day as well!

Day 14 of #letsgetflexy, I’m super sniffy and wearing various layers of clothes and Kurmasana is fun but not easy when your nose is running

Balance is key. In everything you do. Dance all night long and practice yoga the next day. Drink wine but don’t forget your green juice. Eat chocolate when your heart wants it and kale salad when your body needs it. Wear high heels on Saturday and walk barefoot on Sunday. Go shopping at the mall and then sit down and meditate in your bedroom. Live high and low. Move and stay still. Embrace all sides of who you are and live your authentic truth! Be brave and bold and spontaneous and loud and let that complement your abilities to find silence and patience and modesty and peace. Aim for balance. Make your own rules and don’t let anybody tell you how to live according to theirs.

Transatlanticism - Death Cab For Cutie

I need you so much closer.

Hanumanasa on day 12 of #letsgetflexy, I included some prep poses to open the hips and stretch the hamstrings as well, you can see that I’m not at full split yet but the flexibility of my hamstrings has improved so much so I’m actually pretty proud about this already
